Yesterday I took my family to see the Downtown Showdown in Monument Square, here in Portland, Maine. There was a 30 foot staircase built in Monument Square and skiers and snow boarders competed with rail tricks. It was a jib fest right downtown in sleepy Portland, Maine.
I went as more of a spectator than a photographer. I had my 6 year old son on my shoulders for most of the photos, and I was elbow to elbow with the other folks jostling for viewing positions.
(Next time: arrive early, finagle a spot inside the fence, set up lights, shoot like mad.)
I hope Sunday River and Sugarloaf continue to put on moreDowntown Showdown events in years to come.
